The Summer is lining up to the busiest season yet for Brooklyn-based WHITE WIDOWS PACT. The band recently changed the moniker (previously known as WHITE WIDOWS) due to a legal snafu brought on by a lesser outfit, and will pummel audiences over the coming months on the road and more.
First up, today the WHITE WIDOWS PACT drops their first official video through an exclusive premiere through the local support crew at MetalSucks. “El Marrano” hails from the band’s White Widows debut EP, released over the Winter via Sacrament Music. Filmed and directed by Frank Huang with additional footage provided by Yessica Curiel Montoya and Chris Montgomery, the high-action black and white visual depiction of the anthem was filmed at a recent gig at Sacrament Music’s home base at Saint Vitus Bar, and includes a vocal interjection by Brendan Garrone of NYC hardcore act Incendiary.
Check out “El Marrano” now via MetalSucks RIGHT HERE.
With shows booked all over the East Coast and into Canada, WHITE WIDOWS PACT has confirmed performances with Shai Hulud, Earth Crisis, Thy Will Be Done, The Last Stand, Howl, Biohazard, Full of Hell and more through the rest of the Summer, followed by a trip to the first Housecore Horror Film & Music Fest in Austin, Texas this October where they’ll share the stage with Down, Gwar, Eyehategod, Crowbar and more.
Formed by drummer Kenny Appell (Goes Cube, Cleanteeth), bassist Brian Ponto, guitarists Nick Emde (The Destro) and Travis Bacon (Grudges), and vocalist David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, Saint Vitus Bar, Sacrament Music), WHITE WIDOWS PACT merges NYC-style metallic hardcore and Southern sludge metal elements and production into mid-paced metallic grooves, slow-motion breakdowns and high-paced pit-swinging melees, recorded with Dean Baltulonis at the Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Most Precious Blood, Goes Cube).
